Remember IRT personnel were deployed to Delta State in pursuit of the kidnappers who kidnapped the four British Citizens in Burutu area of Delta State on October 13?

Well, on Wednesday, they successfully arrested two of the kidnappers in Warri, Delta State.

But things went awry after the arrested kidnappers confessed and volunteered to lead the IRT operatives to arrest their remaining gang members in Sapele town.

On reaching Sapele one of the kidnappers was sighted by the gang members already arrested.

As IRT operatives advanced to arrest him, he suddenly pulled a pistol and shot Sgt. Sanusi Lanre (F/no 359454) in the stomach and Sgt. Agunbiade Adebayo (F/no:360140 ) on his two hands.

Other IRT team members around immediately replied and gunned down the kidnapper and recovered the pistol with him.

The two injured IRT operatives were admitted in the Delta State University Teaching Hospital (DESUTH) Oghara where Sgt Sanusi Lanre underwent emergency surgery around 3am on Thursday.  

The dead body of the kidnapper was deposited at same hospital mortuary.

Four pints of blood and other items requested for the surgery were provided with several senior officers in the hospital to assist the injured officers.
